TRUTH ◊ POETRY ◊ UNIVERSES
Sibilia’s universe of color, shape, and technique is constantly evolving and transforming, whilst remaining true to the vision of its founder and creative director, Fernanda Sibilia. The line is every bit a reflection of Fernanda’s colorful lifestyle. The influence of Latin American traditions within decorative arts, jewelry, architecture, and visual cultures are evident, although never literal.
Sibilia employs novel metalsmithing and jewelry making techniques, where, like an alchemist in a lab, she manipulates bronze, copper, and alpaca to create a rainbow of bold new combinations and universes.
While her jewelry designs typically reference mid-century modern and Pre-Columbian art, her new home line launched in 2016, recall popular Latin American interior design and enameled objects from the 1970s. They also survey the possibilities of creating bold colors and textures through patination, a signature look she also explores in her jewelry. “I like the uniqueness imprinted on each piece when they are handmade,” says Sibilia. “Sometimes one piece has more than one artisan’s hands involved, as you see in the bowls.”
Sibilia is sold throughout the world in fine specialty shops and leading cultural institutions such as The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago.
